Never been to an upscale steakhouse where the steaks were served lukewarm and the management choose to remake everything for another half hour wait. At the price of the dinner it should be right the first time around.

The ambiance was sexy. The food incredible. The service not good. Never gave us bread or the ice tea I ordered. Had to ask for both. Waiters' outfits were straight out of the 70s, padded shoulders, really? Maybe that's why they seemed so depressed or maybe they didn't book that voice over audition.

The steak was tough, the service was lax, the clientele was snooty and much too loud. The lighting was way too dark; the place looked like it could use a complete overhaul. And to top it off, the bill was way overpriced. Won't be coming back.

Strip House is one of our favorites, has the best steaks in town, but for the past few times we've been there, we have been so rushed thru dinner and out the door, we barely had time to savor the flavor. Please stop rushing the diners thru their meals, the restaurant was not even full when we left! Partrons are really starting to notice this, as I've heard the same comment from several friends.

The steak is not amazing. The service is poor. enough said.. Go somewhere else. there are plenty of great steakhouses. This is not one of them.

I have been in the food service industry for 35 years & travel a great deal. The Strip House came highly recommended so we made reservations for our party of 6. Unfortunately, The Strip House was one of the worst experiences I have ever encountered. We were seated promptly . The atmosphere was cozy and interesting as we were welcomed.. Our waiter recited the specials perfectly yet that was to be the last professional behavior we would witness from him. Proper service & attitude went downhill from that point on. Our first choice of wine was not available, that was understandable & no big deal. As we reviewed the wine list again our ‘surly waiter’ became impatient. We asked him about another wine on the list, he arrogantly remarked, 'it’s a dry red ......' shrugging in a condescending manner. We ordered six appetizers (scallops) and wanted to split entrees since we had a large lunch earlier. His response was a curt, ‘we don’t work that way!’as he turned on his heel and walked away. He returned to our table pressing us to order in a brusque tone. It was quite uncomfortable. The watier returned with the wine & glasses were quickly sloshed with wine & refilled immediately upon a few sips. Our appetizers & entrees were brought hurriedly to the table all at one time. Which was not a surprise as he had proclaimed that he was bringing everything out together as he briskly walked away. He didnt ask us, he told us! Obviously, the intention was to feed us as fast as possible and turn our table quickly. We decided that staying for dessert and after dinner drinks & coffee would be enjoyed at a different establishment. We reluctantly left a 20 percent tip which he did not deserve. I would have preferred to tip his assist staff who were much more gracious. Certainly the rudeness & haughtiness displayed by our particular waiter means that I will never step foot in this restaurant again. There are many other great steakhouses in NYC that appreciate your business.

Went the Strip House the previous Monday for a post birthday dinner. Had some initial concerns due to the fact that my wife and I were up early and around town most of the day and were dressed comfortably because of this. Most of the clientel at the restaurant were dressed like they were going to a Goldman Sachs board meeting. The staff was friendly despite our casual attire and service was great except for one hiccup where were were charged for someone else's $40 glass of wine that the manager quickly fixed after we called them back. The food was great, loved the garlic bread with fondue and the 12+ layer chocolate cake was a hit. The steak was solid but I have noticed a trend with the strips in NYC not being very tender but I don't hold that against the restaurant, could be the distributor or maybe that's how locals like their steak. The meat flavor was very similar to Peter Luger's, think for tenderness, Del Frisco's has the edge. It is clearly a quality dining destination as it was packed on a Monday evening. I'd highly recommend them to anyone who enjoys a great meal!
